The Escapist returns! Now in it's second edition, Monocle's travel annual combs the globe to bring you over 250 pages of fresh insights on places, people and things.
In this issue, executive editor Steve Bloomfield made the jump over to St John's Newfoundland to discover what happens to a Canadian outpost when the oil fiends dry up.
Across the border, Edits editor Josh Fenert checks up on how Buffalo's bounce-back is coming along. In Latin america, Monocle's New York bureau chief Ed Stocker took on Lima while his counterpart from Toronto, Tomos Lewis, was thrilled to be offered Montevideo as a change of scene from Ontario's changeable spring.
Back in Asia, Tokyo-based Asia bureau chief Fiona Wilson packed her jumpers for a few days in Wellington, while James Chambers, Monocle's Hong Kong correspondent paid a visit to Hanoi to sharpen his scooter skills.
We don't usually hard sell our titles, but if you're looking to buy only one travel annual this year, then please do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of The Escapist.
